He lists research interests as controlled release from polymer matrices, polymer degradation, mapping and imaging of polymer formulations, polymer gelation, chemometric data analysis and innovative vibrational spectroscopy.
His current projects involve (i) the chemical modification and characterisation of polymer surfaces, (ii) studying the diffusion properties of PVOH, (iii) monitoring the effects of gamma irradiation on pharmaceutical formulations and (iv) determining the role of water in the gelation of cellulose ethers.
Chris Sammon graduated from Hull with a degree in Chemistry and an MSc in Analytical Science. Having worked for a year as an analytical chemist for Yorkshire Water he moved back into academia to conduct a PhD in polymer spectroscopy within the Materials Research Institute at Sheffield Hallam University under the tutelage of Prof Jack Yarwood and now combines the roles of consultancy manager with academic researcher within the same institution.
